Split a couple of garlic bulbs, use a garlic crusher to crush the clovers into a big pan of water and boil until tend then sieve out the garlic. I add oliver oil to the fluid at this stage. Then store the fluid in plastic bottles until ready for use. I store in milk bottle cartons.
I only have a small area to spray so use one of the smaller plastic sprayers which can be picked up from places like Wilko for a few £'s. If you've sieved the fluid garlic doesn't block up the nozzle when you spray.
Now I'm happy to be wrong but the garlic puts off snails and slugs, anphids breath through their skin and if there are any on your plants when you spray the olive oil coats their skin.
I start spraying mid to late March every few weeks. Then when I've made some seaweed feed, spray the plants with this instead of the garlic and mulch plants with the spent seaweed, it's a bit but the smell actually goes quite quickly and seaweed dries black.
